Review: Wicked Magic by Sandra Madera
Published Date: July 2012
Genre: YA fantasy
The Story: After a time of peace, Willow's world is turned on its side when Nalin is captured and taken into the Underworld.
Just when Willow and Nalin were ready to bind their life forces in a marriage ceremony, their time of peace has ended.
Willow finds out a secret that is both the cause of their union and exile. Daphne, Nalin’s evil sister, has gathered a group of powerful allies in her quest to regain the Ljósálfar kingdom and overthrow their newly formed government. Hoping to separate Willow and Nalin forever, Daphne casts her brother into the darkest and deadliest realm imaginable... Hades.
However, Daphne never expected Willow to delve into the depths of hell to reunite with her lost love and try to set things right. Rules have been broken... Deals have been made... How much is Willow willing to risk to save Nalin’s soul?
My Review: I enjoyed this book! This is such a different twist on elves and the rest of the fantasy world. Willow learns that she isn't a normal elf. I don't want to reveal much on that!
Sandra Madera's writing is easy to follow, and it flows real well! I love reading books where I'm transported to other worlds, even if they tend to dip into the human realm too! Sandra has a vivid imagination, and it shows through her writing. You are able to picture what Willow looks like, and those around her. You're also able to see the different realms she enters, even the darkest of Hades! Definitely a good read!
